It includes a mix of residential properties, interspersed with municipal, educational, religious and missionary buildings, all in one compact neighbourhood constructed over a short period towards the end of the 19th century. It includes elegant streets of purpose built terraced housing for lower-middle and working class residents, fine and typical ‘board’ schools, still in use today, a surviving public house and landmark buildings including the former Flint Street police station.
